Interactive CD-ROM training series on plastic-part design covers the following six areas: Product Development and Prototype Processes; Mechanical Behavior of Polymers; Mold Filling, Gating, & Weld-Line Considerations; Shrinkage, Warpage, & Part Ejection; Mechanical Fasteners, Press Fits & Snap Fits; and Welding and Adhesives Bonding Technology. Virtual- reality animation technology demonstrates product failure, assembly techniques, shrinkage, warpage, fatigue over time, and cyclic stress. Demonstrations include filling analysis and gate location, and weld-line strength and occurrence.

As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult. Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will cause significant time-to-market delays, be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
